Update on the cleanse

I can’t say I’ve noticed any major differences since I’ve been on the cleanse. Day 2 was probably the worst. I went for a short run, something I haven’t done in a long time. It felt good, but a few hours later I started to get a headache, and it turned into an absolute monster. I didn’t want to take any pills, being on a cleanse and all, but I ended up taking a couple rounds of ibuprofen just to get through it, and eventually it faded away. Last night I went to yoga and did several headstands with no problem.

I definitely feel like my system is cleaning itself out, and that’s all I’m gonna say about that. I’ve been weighing myself every day just to see what it says, and it’s been showing about a half pound of weight loss each day. I’ve been paying a lot of attention to what I eat, having a lot of fresh fruit and cooked veggies. I only ate out once this week.

I think my biggest challenge, diet-wise, in the future is making those binge-worthy occasions (baking desserts, holidays, eating out) rare. I take great pleasure in food (as you can see from this blog), so put something fabulous in front of me and I will eat it. During the week, when I’m in charge of what I cook, I do really well.

I’m traveling this weekend, so that will be another challenge, but I feel like just being conscious of making better choices will help more than anything.
